• Italian class in Didsbury: words to use at weddings in Italy

    One of my students attending my Italian class in Didsbury asked me the other day about some good expressions to use at a wedding she was attending in Italy. I thought there were some good ones worth sharing so here they are:

    General Congratulations:

    Congratulazioni! – General congrats!

    Complimenti! – Well done!

    Bravo/a! – Congrats/good job!

    Soon to be married:

    Tanti auguri per una vita felice insieme! – Many wishes for a happy life together! 

    Congratulazioni ai nuovi fidanzati! – Congrats to the newly engaged!

    Just married:

    Evviva gli sposi! – Long live the bride and groom!/General congrats! This is a great one to shout to the bride and groom if you see them on the streets of Italy.

    Tanta felicità – Tons of happiness for your future!

    Ormai la frittata è fatta! – No going back now! A playful congratulations used among friends/family

    So if you’re heading to a wedding in Italy why not try these out and see what happens? I’m sure the Italian contingent will be pretty impressed.
